I watched Woody Allen’s “Manhattan” on Saturday. The movie is from 1979 and I have problem seen it more than 12 times. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. This black and white classic is romantic and funny. It has a wonderful sound track. I love it. Here are some of the lines from Manhattan that I really like:

I had a mad impulse to throw you down on the lunar surface and commit interstellar perversion.
Plus I'll probably have to give my parents less money. It'll kill my father. He's not gonna be able to get as good a seat in the synagogue. He'll be in the back, away from God, far from the action.
Years ago I wrote this short story about my Mother called "The Castrating Zionist"
Don't stare at me with those big eyes. Geez, you look like one of those barefoot kids from Boliva who needs foster parents.
Oh, but really biting satire is always better than physical force.No, physical force is always better with Nazis.
